A fit and trim Abraham Lincoln has defeated General Robert E. Lee. The president is wearing blue boots with a star on the side, boxing shorts resembling the American flag and his black stovepipe hat. He is grinning as he flexes his muscles and is wearing blue and red boxing gloves with a white star on each. A rather overweight and out of shape Robert E. Lee
(probably from sitting on his horse to much and not getting proper exercise) is on his knees begging for mercy. He is wearing boxing shorts inspired by the Confederate flag as well as red shoes and gloves. They are both in a boxing ring. The two white pads in the far corners of the boxing ring have the names of the opponents: Lee and Lincoln. On the two pads nearest President Lincoln is written Steve Moseley on one, and St. Louis 2008 on the other. The stopper and locking mechanisms are made of walnut and there is a small maple ball topping the stopper. On the front of the stopper inlaid in basswood is the title of the whimsey: RIGHT MAKES MIGHT.
